Thieves take firefighters' Initial Attack truck
Photo shows a 2004 Ford F-550 4x4 diesel crew cab that was stolen from the Clearwater Fire Zone compound on Canada Day. The truck has a GPS tracker installed but it was disabled almost immediately by the thieves, according to fire zone manager Jim Jones. A trailer and quad also were taken.
Below: A side view gives some indication of how much firefighting equipment would have been on the vehicle when it was stolen. A replacement vehicle from Lillooet was to arrive Thursday, but would not have the same complement of gear as the missing truck.
